Ninety Plus Acre Family Farm
Pick some fresh strawberries and blueberries, and toss them into one of your Grow Cocktails, fold them into a bit of whipped cream on the deck after some yard work, or enjoy the luscious berries after the quintessential summertime barbeque!
It is not summer in southeastern Massachusetts if you’re not out in the field at the local farm picking fresh strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and apples. In the summer months, the focus is on strawberries, which typically are ready for picking in mid to late June—if you haven’t picked and eaten a fresh strawberry or blueberry, you are truly missing out. The farm only offers the highest quality locally grown fruit and produce that are fresh and in season.
C.N. Smith farm located in East Bridgewater was founded by Carl Smith in the 1920s as a potato farm with only 20 acres. Over the years, additions included the raising of various livestock and poultry up until the late 1950s, when Carlton Smith decided to take the farm in a different direction. Carlton, a graduate of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture, implemented a plan to raise strawberries and different varieties of plants to sell at the wholesale markets, and for locals to be able to pick their own right out of the ground. The latest generation of Smiths have channeled their forefathers’ spirit, and have expanded the offerings some 80 years later, with over 90 acres of fruit and vegetables including tomatoes, asparagus, lettuce, corn, peaches, plums, nectarines, pears, and more.
